    I worked at University of Texas at Tyler part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The current Eagle's Landing manager is laid back, the financial administrator is informative, and they pay for your housing and meal plan.

    Cons

    The benefits don't outweigh the effort they expect. Housing department managers are inconsistent with how they treat their employees. Employees are made to feel less than, incompetent, and the need to suck up to managers to ensure rehire each semester which provides for an unconducive work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Stop talking about employees with the staff and be consistent with how you treat all employees.
